SWC Free Walk 164, Roydon to Sawbridgeworth. 9/10/12.

A very pleasant 14.2 miles of walking on the borders of Hertfordshire and Essex. Shortly after leaving the station-cum-restaurant, the walker is soon into open countryside and onto the Harcamlow Way, which is followed for around the next 4 miles. The walking is along tracks, green lanes and quiet country roads, with a riverside stretch and a section along a disused rail line. Then, it's through a sculpture park and on to lunch at Perry Green, former home of Henry Moore. After this, it's more of the same, crossing fields and following quiet roads before reaching Capability Brown's Phisiobury Park, on the outskirts of Sawbridgeworth. Thereafter, it's along The Stort Navigation and then a short residential section before reaching the station. A very nice walk that incorporates a lot of variety, though this walker is not a fan of sculpture in the countryside! Note that the lunch-time pub is closed Jan-end March, though this walk might be too long for that time of year anyway.
